Aphelion Wine Co. ‘Affinity’ GMS 2019Regular price $37.00
A blend of Grenache, Mataro and a hint of Shiraz. To quote Rob Mack "this has oodles of complexity".
There is a wonderful savouriness to this wine that comes through on the nose and the palate. There is a certain meatiness that comes from the Mataro that in my mind makes this blend. Grenache is always great but its how you balance the Mataro and the Shiraz that really makes a Rhone Blend work. The Grenache provides wonderful bright red fruitedness, vibrant and spicy. The Mataro gives that savoury meatiness and the Shiraz provides the plushness and body.
A masterful example of a Rhone Blend.
